, today announced that Tamás Tárnok, has been named a “Most Valuable Professional (MVP)” in the technology category by Sitecore®, the global leader in experience management software. Tamás was one of only 208 Technology MVPs worldwide to be named a Sitecore MVP this year.

Now it its 12th year, Sitecore’s MVP program recognizes individual technology, strategy, and commerce advocates who share their Sitecore passion and expertise to offer positive customer experiences that drive business results. The Sitecore MVP Award recognizes the most active Sitecore experts from around the world who participate in online and offline communities to share their knowledge with other Sitecore partners and customers. 


"Many years ago, when we started working with Sitecore, it seemed a very far-reaching goal that one of our colleagues would become MVP and it has been achieved now. We are very proud of our Sitecore MVP. We can always count on his professional knowledge and experience. I would also like to congratulate him on this!" Imre Németh - Head of Portal Development 
"The Sitecore MVP awards recognize and honor those individuals who make substantial contributions to our loyal community of partners and customers,” said Pieter Brinkman, Sitecore Senior Director of Technical Marketing. “MVPs consistently set a standard of excellence by delivering technical chops, enthusiasm, and a commitment to giving back to the Sitecore community. They truly understand and deliver on the power of the Sitecore Experience Platform to create personalized brand experiences for their consumers, driving revenue and customer loyalty."
The Sitecore Experience Platform™ combines web content management, omnichannel digital delivery, insights into customer activity and engagement, and strategic digital marketing tools into a single, unified platform. Sitecore Experience Commerce™ 9, released in January 2018, is the only cloud-enabled platform that natively integrates content and commerce so brands can fully personalize and individualize the end-to-end shopping experience before, during, and after the transaction. Both platforms capture in real time every minute interaction—and intention—that customers and prospects have with a brand across digital and offline channels. The result is that Sitecore customers are able to use the platform to engage with prospects and customers in a highly personalized manner, earning long-term customer loyalty.

Congratulations, we are very proud of you, Tamás! You’ve became the one and only Hungarian Sitecore MVP this year. What is the secret behind your success?

In brief, a person who is active in the Sitecore community can be a Sitecore MVP. I write blog posts about common problems, usually related to development. My last public project is the Helix.Skeleton on GitHub which is a project generator for Helix based solutions. I always spent a lot of time initializing a project especially in Helix so I just automated this process with PowerShell and published it. Maybe this could help other developers to accelarate the project setup. I also try to be active on Sitecore Stack Exchange and Sitecore Community Slack channel. I regularly check Sitecore Stack Exchange website and try to answer unresolved questions. We have been participating in Sitecore Hackathons for three years in a row and last year we released a Sitecore Module from it. I am the lead organizer of SUG Hungary and I also regularly present there. I presented about Unicorn in March and Sitecore xDB in November last year.

What are your goals for the future?

I would like to continue contributing on Sitecore Stack Exchange, GitHub and writing more blog posts. As we started the Sitecore User Group Hungary in Budapest I would like to organize at least 4 more in this year and also give presentations there. Next meetup will take place in February. As I am a real fan of Helix I would like to develop my Helix.Skeleton project.
